CRESTVIEW —  North Okaloosa schools are raising money for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life in April.

Several schools have Relay For Life teams, which have organized multiple fundraisers with teachers, faculty and students' help.

Davidson Middle School's team, which has raised more than $9,000, collected most of the funds from last month's Davidson Dash 5K/10K, which nabbed more than $7,000, team captain Daniel Richards said. The team also had a yard sale and monthly faculty luncheons.

Baker School's team met a $4,000 goal following T-shirt sales, December's Santa Shop and selling caramel covered apples, team chair Janice Roberts said.

Northwood Arts and Science Academy has raised $1,800 from monthly teachers luncheons, Kacy Kellogg said. 

This will be Bob Sikes Elementary School's 13th year of involvement, Christi Collinsworth, the school's team captain, said.
